Buffalo bulls . Progress so far......

Well this is what my buffalo painting looks like at the moment, still a long way before its finished.The painting is based on some photos that was taken on a trip in Savuti which is a area well known for its wildlife especially for its elephants,it is situated between the Chobe and Moremi National park.It was a great trip and we saw so much including leopard,wild dog,lion,elephants,buffalo and all the common wildlife .This herd of buffalo that we came across was a bachelor herd of about 30 bulls many who were fighting, at one time their were 5 pairs all jostling. All this action was accompanied by a lot of snorting , clashing of horns and dust.I hope to capture some of this in my painting.
